Enermax Hoplite

techPowerUp!
25 August 2011
  • Summary: The Hoplite is a very solid chassis from Enermax - which may be surprising for some. While the exterior is cause for some concern in terms of construction quality the case scores big with the cool looks and well engineered interior design. The hot-swap bays along with the extremely well made tool-less systems for both ODDs and HDDs make the chassis a joy to work with.
  • Pros: Well designed front with flop open bars for easy installation of 5.25 inch drives, LED VEGAS Fan for plenty of lighting customization, Two hot-swap HDD bays with high-quality PCB, Plenty of space for large CPU coolers, 240 mm radiator should fit into ceiling, Plenty of space for fans above the case ceiling, Excellent tool-less system for hard drives, Great tool-less system for ODDs, LED VEGAS fan speed easily adjustable, USB 3.0 connector, HDD dock up top
  • Cons: Plastic feels flimsy, HDD dock not really there - it is just a connector, Large opening in side panel means that noise is hard to keep within the case, Small openings in the mainboard tray for cable management, Tight space between mainboard tray and side panel. Tough for cable management, Only two fans

Enermax Hoplite Review

  • Excerpt: From the outside, the Enermax Hoplite doesn’t really stand out. Its generic industrial look has been done before, and better—it owes a lot to Cooler Master’s HAF series, by way of example. What it lacks in the looks department, however, it makes up for with ease of use. Couple that with a $100 price tag and a pretty spiffy LED-enabled front fan, and you’ve got yourself a deal. Kind of. The Hoplite is a mid-tower chassis that is painted black throughout.
  • Pros: Cool LEDs and removable dust filter on front fan.
  • Cons: Industrial look doesn’t really work for us; no side window; flimsy top-panel SATA dock.

Enermax Hoplite ST

  • Summary: It a great mid tower gaming case with a really simple design. If you are in the market for a new case this is definitely something you should take a look at.
  • Pros: Top mounted hot-swapable hardrive bay, tool less design, lots of room for a mid tower case, light and easily portable.
  • Cons: there is quite a bit of plastic used in the case.

Enermax Hoplite ST

  • Conclusion: Enermax zeigt beim Hoplite ST schönes Design, aktuelle Technik, saubere Verarbeitung, vernünftige Ausstattung sowie ein gutes Kabelmanagement – und bleibt dabei immer noch bei moderaten Anschaffungskosten. Zudem finden sich Staubschutzfilter und Schnellmontageelemente, was keine Selbstverständlichkeit ist.

Enermax Hoplite ST

  • Summary: Enermax setzt den Hebel gekonnt im Bereich „günstig“ an, ohne dabei auf aktuelle Technik und Ausstattung zu verzichten. Der Versuch ist beim Hoplite ST durchaus gelungen. Da auch die Optik passt und es an der Verarbeitung nichts auszusetzen gibt, bekommt das hübsche Case auch eine entsprechend gute Wertung. Hannes meint: Ein überzeugender Midi-Tower, der die Börse schont!
  • Pros: gute Verarbeitung, Stauraum für bis zu sechs Festplatten, Staubschutzfilter + Schnellmontageelemente, USB 3.0 intern, bis zu fünf Lüfter möglich, Lüftersteuerung, Docking Station (Hot-swap), sehr leicht, hübsche Optik, günstig
  • Cons: kein e-SATA
